A short trip from the city center lies the serenity of MacRitchie Reservoir, part of Singapore’s water catchment system that captures rain water to help supply the island’s growing population. Trails surround the park, which has an upgraded visitor’s center featuring a café, restrooms and information station. The best views are from the TreeTop Walk, a 250-meter suspension bridge across the rainforest canopy, which can be accessed along the seven-kilometer Venus Loop. Wear hiking shoes and bring water.

to get to the tree top it was quite a climb. a lot of steps up and down. but this is a really unique experience to have in urbanized Singapore. view was great. be careful of monkeys though.

We had a great day trekking here. Aside from hectic city area Singapore, MacRitchie is place for us to immerse to the nature. The trail is not so long so it is suitable for people with little exercise.

Take a taxi to 'Venus drive car park' and walk the 9km to the main park entrance, from there you can get a bus or taxi home. The walk is stunning, with cable suspension bridge, lookout tower and huge lake. Look out for whip snakes...More

The nature trail is not bad for Singapore standards as it is the only one and thankfully some of the jungle was maintained. But if you compare this to any other nature trail in the surrounding countries this is poor. You walk on a perfecly...More

Best place in Singapore to run, especially for one who loves running in trails. The treetop walk is also a highly popular place for families and couples especially.

This is a good place to enjoy fresh air and nature. Do watch out for macaques, which can be quite aggressive. Do not leave food exposed, avoid eye contact and do have an umbrella or walking stick handy, in case you have to deal with...More

Yes trail is open on Monday but not the treetop section. You can easily do the trail and skip that section. Hope this helps and was fast enough.
